Music and bands

I play all kinds of traditional American music such as jazz, ragtime, and old-time fiddle tunes on many different instruments. In recent years, I have been focusing on guitar, fiddle, banjo, lap steel, and harmonica, but also play the mandolin, bass, and washboard well. My current bands include:

Breakers Yard
Breakers Yard is a ton of fun. We play ragtime, hot jazz and old standards, western swing and honky tonk, and some delta & stomp blues. The band includes me (on resophonic guitar, harmonica, fiddle, and lap steel) and good friends Steven Weeks, Joe Davey, and Matt Fleming. You can check out Breakers Yard, including tracks for listening and dates for shows at our website or buy an album at We also have a Facebook page at if you're on the FB, "Like" us so we build fame on our way to fortune.
